The new version, which was actually a mashup of Miley’s chart topper and Madge’s 2001 track, “Don’t Tell Me,” was part of the Bangerz singer’s downhome MTV Unplugged special.
The performance, which featured the duo in rhinestone cowboy gear, had the two sharing singing duties and showing off their Texas two-step. This eventually lead to Miley doing some rather awkward bumpin’ and grindin’ with the Material Girl. But don’t worry, she’s just being Miley.
Miley admitted that she was surprised Madonna was interested in performing with her, but felt like they were kindred spirits.
“A lot of what she represented for me is what I try to represent to girls now,” Miley explained. “Not being afraid of sexuality. Really being what you want to be, and do what you want to do.”
Though the night featured a lot of over the top moments, including one where Miley twerked with two men in a horse costume, she did manage to find some time for the music. One of the more memorable performances being a stripped down, country twang-filled rendition of “Wrecking Ball.”
